I am all alone and I am happy, can’t you see
Maybe this is how I was always meant to be – All Alone!

I made you in charge of my happiness and smile
You stomped on my heart and went your way
I cried and cried and it took me a while
To realize that all I need is just me to brighten up my day.

No matter with no one, I am happy that way!

Soon I forgot the pains of being with someone.
The compromises, the efforts, the sacrifices one has to make!
And I fell for his false words once again.
Only to be all alone, once again!

I wish to fall in love with none but myself this time.
To be happy & content with me,
Difficult as it may be, that’s how I am meant to be – All Alone!!

No, it’s not like I have no one who loves me,
No one who cares for me or pampers me.
But I push them away; don’t let them in my heart
Because I know – when the season would change
They’ll be gone their way, happy in their lives
And I’ll be once again heartbroken, miserable and All Alone!

So now I have decided to make myself the hero of my own story
The reason for my happiness, the star of my life
And I have decided to walk this path all alone

All alone, and happy!
Happy, but all alone!!
